This site of early Paleo-Indian civilization, beautifully maintained by our National Park Service, focuses on the inhabitants of this area from 10,000 BCE to the early 1700's. Walking the paths to and around the ceremonial mounds, where ancient peoples lived & flourished, pre- Mississipians to the Creeks, is an archeological adventure. Archeologists have restored, based on their findings, the earthlodge... More

We had a great day in February that was perfect for a nice walk in the park and this was a perfect place for it. We found it quite interesting and enjoyed the museum. Macon has a wonderful park system with a walking path along the river that ties it all together. Great place for a long stroll.

This is an amazing place. We happened upon it while on a road trip from Florida to Illinois. It's beautiful, and we learned a ton. My 5 and 7-year olds loved it. While we were there, we were told about a special lantern-tour that evening. So we went back that night. The tour was amazing! The staff was knowledgeable and... More

We started our exploration of the site with the video presentation in the visitor's center--very informative and important to our understanding of the site. Next, we walked around the mounds and especially enjoyed viewing the interior of the earth lodge, the ceremonial mound. We then viewed the exhibits in the visitor's center. It is a cultural and historic gem!

My rating is based on the facility being a part of the NPS. Given a system that includes Canyonlands, Cap Reef, Death Valley, Big Bend, Acadia, The Statue of Liberty, etc. it is nice but not really all that special. There are a few nice trails, but none of them match the offerings and life changing experiences of the bigger... More

We were on a quick weekend trip here and saw good things about this place. Unfortunately, we didn't get here until 4 and it closed at 5. We rushed to see as much as we could and can't wait to go back and spend several hours here. Highly recommend you take a visit here.

Such a great time walking around the monument and grounds! You can make it as long of a day as you want. Absolutely beautiful and very historic.

My wife and I go walking here occasionally and it is always beautiful! The museum is very interesting and they even have a gift shop. Be sure to bring your walking shoes if you want to visit the earth mounds.
